I *think* over time the Judge Dredd one got ahead of both, but I've honestly lost track of what's in the shops and when, so it may happen eventually. But yes, it's not a perk of subscribing to get both early, as you get both month's releases bundled together rather than sent individually. And as it's free shipping it seems churlish to complain about that. So it's not unreasonable to expect it ahead of the second release but not the first of that month IMO.
Got my box today - tin plate and issues 7 & 8. Didn't come with the replacement for issue 1 that is shrink-wrapped on the newsstands, and 7 has a dent in the cover. Standard for when they ship in these useless big boxes. Not really too impressed with this tin cover thing either. Same scratches on each corner that I've seen from others. Won't pursue a replacement for that though as its pretty useless, but have used live chat on hatchette site to request new 7. They said issue 1 was sent separately just this week.
I logged into my account as I need to cancel my subscription and pay for what I have already received, but my profile on their site contains nothing. No address details, no orders, no subscription. This is strange. The only information is my email address.
Last week Hatchette sent me a letter saying that my bank account had declined their payment, and I owe them about £30. I haven't had chance to sort that out yet, what with one thing and another, but today I find they've sent me the replacement Target: 2006 anyway. Jolly nice of them.
